conference tonight after house republican conference meeting, john boehner could not answer this very simple question from nbc's luke russert. >> you're planning on passing tomorrow -- >> at the white house today, jay carney was pleased to see the republicans moving in the president's direction. >> the president will not negotiate over congress's responsibility to pay the bills that congress has already incurred. that is true today, it will be true in three months and true for as long as he is president. the house republicans made a decision to back away from the kind of brinksmanship that was very concerning to the markets and business. very concerning to the american people. so the fact that the house republicans have made this decision is certainly something that we welcome. >> but jay carney would not say if the president is willing to urge democrats to help the new boehner plan pass. >> is the president encouraging members of the house to vote for that bill? and would he sign it? veto it? what is the position on the bill? >> as i said the bill still has to overcome concerns expressed by
rd. there's a new debt ceiling plan from speaker john boehner and the house republicans that could force senate democrats to finally show their hand and pass a budget. plus it's only day four of president obama's second term, but joe biden is already commenting on possibly running for the top job himself in 2016. we'll show you what he said in a minute. first the new developments in the debate over guns in america. the national rifle association last night delivered a sharp response to president obama's inaugural address. speaking in reno, nevada, way waywayn wayne lapierre lashed out at one word from president obama. >> we cannot mistake absolutism, or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> obama wants to turn the idea of absolutism into a dirty word, just another word for extremism. he wants you, all of you, and americans throughout all of this country, to accept the idea of principles as he sees fit. it's a way of redefining words so that commonsense is turned upside down and that nobody knows the difference. >> lapierre vowed not to give ground on gun control including effor
of stuff that people can come after you with. kind of the backdrop here is that house speaker john boehner has had some hiccups or headaches lately. it started late last year when house republicans struggled over how to deal with the george w. bush tax cuts. the house wanted them all extended for everybody. democrats are never on board. president obama was never going to be on board with the idea. so john boehner struggled in that situation, even coming up with an alternative plan for extending tax breaks for anyone making less than $1 million a year. he had to pull from the courthouse. so that was. a was. the next day, he also -- not the next day. excuse me, on january 1, they came back and finally agreed to raise tax rates for those incomes of people making $400,000 a year. that was a tough bill and proposal for him to put forward to, just because taxes went up at the end of the day. the next day he came back and decided to not have a vote on the sandy relief package. that made house lawmakers angry in the northeast. governor chris christie of new jersey also had some tough words for him

obama let her at toout tud out after a john boehner comment is in the eye roll that is buzzing online. >> a beautiful view of clouds over the bay area. i'll let you know when we can suspect rain. >> live look at traffic it's overcast at this point. looks better for folks on the righthand side of the screen. back >>> a frightening incident in spain. a woman collapses and falls on to tracks. people scurried around and a train was approaching. suddenly a police officer who was farther down jumped ton tracks and dragged her as you can see, to the opposite platform just seconds before the train entered the station. police say the woman tumbled after suffering a dizzy spell. >> there was nothing high school wrestlers could do about that. the senior somehow managed to walk away after this light fell on top of him. my goodness, he had only a small cut on his head. the spotlight is a trademark for the event held every year in the town. and perhaps maybe next year? >> wow. >> let's check on the forecast now. >> spencer christian. >> here is a time lapse view in emeryville. watch the clouds movi
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
the gop should embrace obama. so if you are talking to john boehner or mitch mcconnell, you will have sort of a different message to them. i don't consider you a liberal democrat or a right-wing republican. right? politics aside. >> i am sort of down the middle. so why would you argue that thegol g.o.p. should embrace obama? >> i didn't write that headline. my friends wrote it but the gist of this article is, is that if you look at everything obama did or most of the things he did over the past four years, his big policies, he borrowed them from past republican presidents. i went all the way back to nixon. nix on raised taxes on the rich cut them on the poor. ronald reagan backed an assault weapons ban. ronald reagan was the first president to support what we now call cap and trade. ronald reagan. when i tweeted that yesterday, when i wrote about it, of course, i got bombarded with the usual, oh, you are just full of it, bravenld u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. def -- brand u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. people don't get it. r
. on the house floor today, speaker john boehner called the republican bill, "pretty simple." >> it says there should be no long term increase in the debt limit until there's a long term plan to deal with the fiscal crisis that faces our country. >> ifill: today, the house opted for short term, temporarily lifting the debt ceiling until may 19, then resetting the cap to cover any borrowing over the current limit-- $16.4 trillion. and for now, republicans will not force immediate spending cuts. the party's new strategy would achieve that goal by forcing congress to pass a budget. house budget committee chair-- and last year's vice presidential nominee-- paul ryan. >> here's the point, we have a law, it's called the budget act, it requires that congress passes a budget by april 15. all we're saying is, "congress, follow the law, do your work, budget. and the reason for this extension is so we can have the debate we need to have." >> ifill: as added incentive, the house bill says, if there is no budget, then lawmakers won't get paid. after it passed today by a bipartisan vote of 285 to 144,
: house speaker john boehner said republicans were willing to suspend the debt ceiling for three months. sending democrats to act. >> it has been nearly four years since the senate has done a budget. most americans believe you don't do your job, you shouldn't get paid. that's the basis. no budget; no pay. it is time for the senate to act. >> reporter: the white house called the move by house republicans "significant," though the administration still argues a short-term extension of borrowing authority does not go far enough. >> what we support is a long- term raising of the debt ceiling so that we don't have any doubt or uncertainty for businesses or the global economy about the simple proposition that the united states always pays its bills. >> reporter: at a house hearing on the debt ceiling debate, simon johnson, a former chief economist for the i.m.f. warned the continuing controversy could roil global markets and hurt the u.s. at home. >> if you don't raise the debt ceiling now, or if you postpone this confrontation, if you say every 60, 90, or 100 days, we're going to again have t
is too small. >>brian: we now know why michelle obama rolled her eyes at house speaker john boehner during monday's inauguration luncheon in the capitol. according to a professional lip reader -- >>gretchen: i knew it was a joke between two guys. >>brian: boehner asked the president if he had a cigarette and then somebody won't let you do it. >>gretchen: president obama, a longtime smoker claims to have kicked the habit. you can tell when we looked at this video yesterday that the two gentlemen were enjoying some sort of joke that michelle obama did not think was funny. now we know why. of course. she's probably been trying to help her husband kick the habit. keep in mind, her initiative is healthy america. it has to do with obesity but also healthy america. john boehner, as we know, totally his right. he's a smoker. maybe it's the one thing that john boehner and president obama agree on. >>brian: that john boehner should keep smoking? >>gretchen: no. that they enjoy a cigarette from time to time. >>steve: if she said to one of the 60 minutes reporters i was only allowed to run for
completed an evaluation of that same keystone pipeline. john boehner had this to say about it. he said nebraska's approval of the new keystone xl pipeline route means there is no bureaucratic excuse, hurdle or catch president obama can use to delay this project any further. he and he alone stands in the way of tens of thousands of new jobs and energy security. i mean, that's putting it right on the president. >> here is the reality about the keystone pipeline that comes from canada to the united states to deliver oil. that oil is going to somewhere no matter what. this is becoming an ideological touchstone in washington but it doesn't mean a whole lot. that oil will find its way to china, the united states, to europe wherever it's needed whether the pipeline comes to the united states or it goes across canada and off the coast of vancouver british columbia. this dc fight has very little meaning in the larger picture. >> michael: but those dc fights change the way we talk about it. >> they do. >> michael: it will be the centerpiece for however long for a moment or months of conversation
obama not to tear up. >> jennifer: or john boehner for pete's sake. >> right. and it is heard breaking and our leaders are human beings, and i think it's awesome that we recognize them as human beings, and it's those human reactions that make me feel good about the fact that the decisions they make will be guided by both the brain, and the heart, the right way to do it. >> jennifer: yeah, you are exactly right about that. you put it so well. >> i think for her -- i think -- >> jennifer: go ahead. >> i was just going to say -- i -- i don't think anybody thinks hillary clinton is weak. so i think when you have a human moment like that it doesn't take away from her standing in our world at all. >> jennifer: i agree. the other person who is sort of a heart-centered person in the administration is joe biden. >> yeah. >> jennifer: and they are both -- joe and hilary very close and of course potentially competitors in a 2016 run. do you think that would actually happen? would one of them step back for the other? because they are very dear friends? >> here is the one thing

's constitutional and everybody knows it is a cover for a strategic retreat from the principle that john boehner articulated earlier that the only amount of debt limit increase that's going to pass is going to have dollar for dollar spending cuts. that's very hard to do, for democrats, for republicans, for anybody in washington, and so he's backed away from that, and now he's going to try to see if he can pass it with republican votes. the importance of this principle from a democratic point of view is they've broken with the idea that the debt limit is so important that it needs to be enforced. that's why senate democrats say they will pass this next week by an overwhelming margin if it passes the house. the white house says it won't block it and house democrats, if you read between the lines, they're urging their members to vote against it, but they don't mind this proposal one bit. here is chris van hollen, the ranking democrat on the house budget committee today. >> the good news is that our congressional republican olleagues have finally recognized that america must pay its bills and meet i
in that meeting house speaker john boehner announced that house budget chairman paul ryan, the former vice presidential candidate is working on a plan to balance the budget in less than 10 years. that gives some reassurance to conservatives who are anxious about voting to authorize more debt, shep. >> shepard: democrats, mike, said they wanted a longer extension. what's the word from them on this proposal? >> well, the senate majority leader harry reid didn't fully embrace the house plan. he also didn't say no either. but over at the white house, well, they are saying the president would sign it. >> the bill still has to overcome some concerns expressed by members of the house and the senate before it can pass both chambers and reach the president's desk. if it does, and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> if the president is not going to block it that would seem to add pressure on senator reid to take it up and act on it and that may force a budget to get done before long. shep? >> shepard: see what happens. mike emanuel on capitol h
